Hi,
I piped lines of buttercream in numerous colors in patterns on the cake. Then drug a toothpick through the lines to make it look kind of fanned out. Take a look at the picture to get an idea. I thought it looked pretty tie dyeish. icon_smile.gif

KimAZ has a good idea...if you made a bullseye type pattern with different colors you could drag in and out from the center circle to make a tie dye design. you could make different bullseye designs with different alternating colors all over the cake.

I know you said you don't do Fondant, but I did a tye dye using fondant, but I actually sponge painted it. Just a thought you could try it on a test to see if it'd work. I used Amiracolor liquid colors.

Hi, There is a uk website for a company called David Cakes, he does a lot in buttercream and there are several examples of cakes that I think could easily pass as tie dye! The website is www.davidcakes.co.uk and here is an example of the sort of thing I am talking about! (By the way the website is way crazy.. takes a while to get through it all!) Hope it helps!
